Sorry for those not in the US. You'll have to do some converting on your own because I am just far too lazy to do it myself.

EDIT: I said $400. I think I could convince myself to put out that much money and still get a few games near launch. If it is over $400 I might have a harder time convincing myself.

Depends on what features it has and what hot exclusives it gets

1 dollar bob

#5 Posted by Sackmanjones (4702 posts) -

399. Hopefully Sony learned from its mistakes and will release it at this price.

#6 Posted by Bobby_The_Great (1004 posts) -

I'll go 300, maybe $350, but I'm not doing $400 or $600 again... at that point, I'll just buy my better and more powerful graphics card for my PC and get even better graphics. 

#7 Posted by Donkeycow (556 posts) -

I said 300, not because i expect them to be at that price at launch but because i will wait to purchase a console till it is at that price point.

550..  
Fuck it 650.. I got money to waste

$350. And if it is higher than that, I'll simply play all of the games in my current gen backlog until the price drops.

#10 Posted by Scheds (464 posts) -

I said $500. That's an expensive piece of technology, for sure. But since I'll be using my PS4 or whatever it may be nearly every day for a four or five year period, I don't think it's unreasonable.

#11 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

I'll probably hold off on buying a new console if it is over 300 bucks. It also depends on if I want it badly.

#12 Posted by RE_Player1 (7560 posts) -

I'd pay up to $900 as long as it was bundled with a game.

#13 Posted by Jams (2961 posts) -

$250 $275 $300 at most

#14 Posted by SmilingPig (1337 posts) -

400$ for me but I will probably wait close to one year before I get it, I want to wait for games to come out and for the console manufacturers to put out their 2.0 hardware.

#15 Edited by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

If we're talking Wii U, $300.

For the next PlayStation I would pay up to $500 depending on how good the launch line-up is. (So, if the launch line-up is just kind of middling, I would probably only pay like 400 bucks to get one.)

#17 Posted by RE_Player1 (7560 posts) -

@Jams: You are on crack if you think any next gen console, WiiU is not next gen, will be under $300 at launch.

#18 Posted by 49th (2756 posts) -

£200

#19 Posted by SpartanHoplite (384 posts) -

300$, maybe 400$. But not over that.

#20 Posted by Gargantuan (1882 posts) -

5000 Swedish kronor, which is 740 dollars.

#21 Posted by wjb (1662 posts) -

$300 + bullshit. So, technically close to $400 after everything?

I got a feeling I'm going to spend the first year or two of the next generation going back and playing games I've missed or replaying certain titles from this generation, like previous cycles. That is unless I get a better job after earning my Master's by next year (pfft...).

That's how much I'm willing to pay not how much I think it'll release at. I'm more than likely going to wait until there's a must have game that I can't get on the PC. Until then, I'm just going to stick to PC

COCAINE MOUNTAIN BABY!

@Jams: Sorry I misunderstood the thread. That came off a bit rude :P

#25 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1247 posts) -

I think at launch $400 is reasonable. I felt bad after I got a PS3 for $600.

No prob

#27 Posted by SeanFoster (868 posts) -

If it's over $400 I'd probably wait until there were a few games I wanted to play and just use my PC until then.

#28 Edited by GunstarRed (5180 posts) -

£250 (which as of now is like $400)

#29 Posted by hangedtoaster (156 posts) -

I can see myself spending up to $500 basing of what we've heard will be in the new consoles.

#30 Posted by StarFoxA (5157 posts) -

As a broke college student, somewhere in the $200 - $300 range would be nice... I could go without eating for a little bit.

#31 Posted by falserelic (5436 posts) -

Name the price I got the cash money ain't a thang.

#32 Posted by peritus (1012 posts) -

@StarFoxA: That's probably not going to happen. But i hope it will.

#33 Posted by mosespippy (4180 posts) -

My first PS3 was $620 Canadian and it was a great investment.

#34 Posted by Vonocourt (2130 posts) -

I'm hoping for something like four hundred, but I may go up five hundred, depends on my financial situation come time.

#35 Posted by Breadfan (6590 posts) -

$400

Allow me to tell you about a little piece of hardware called the Nintendo Wii U! It has the Batman and the Assassin's Creed!

Yeahhh, I figure that since the Durango and PS4 will likely be super-expensive by college student standards, I'll have to wait a while for the price to go down, skip more meals, or resort to PC gaming.

$550 for me. I think that is what my PS3 cost.

I remember I couldn't stop laughing at that genji stage demo.

450...like a BOSS

#42 Posted by JoeyRavn (4973 posts) -

I won't buy a new console at launch, so €200 at most. And possibly after the first hardware revision.

#43 Posted by Aleryn (704 posts) -

$300. Higher then that and I'd rather just upgrade my PC.

#44 Posted by PolyesterPimp (255 posts) -

12$ minus 300$ plus 10% Illinois tax minus my soul plus a waffle.

#45 Posted by Delsaber (198 posts) -

$350 would be my ideal stopping point. Anything exceeding $400 is absurd to me.

#46 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

No more than £500.

What was the ps3's release price? I can't recall. I feel like the 360 was at $300 without a hard drive, correct?

It's funny how revisions are a given now, we've all been well trained.

#50 Edited by Dixavd (1358 posts) -

I would go up to £300 which closest option their is $500 (that includes Tax btw). Consoles usually cost more here (as gaming costs are generally slightly inflated here and I think our basic Tax is higher) so that would probably be closer to $450 in the US.

---Edit---

To put that into perspective, I just looked up the price of the PS3 and the 360's original price in the UK. The basic price for the 360 was £209.99 ($334.64) and the 'Premium' version was £279.99 ($446.19) and the PS3 had a starting RRP of £425.00 ($676.77). And then the Wii was £179 ($350).
